9 thoughts on “eleven elevens

  1. Fun!

    I’m taking a medical writing course this semester and we read a paper about common pharmaceutical errors in communication, and a HUGE one is when pharmacists write “Take once daily” on a Spanish-speaking person’s medication bottle. It means one time in English, but eleven times in Spanish! Huge and dangerous difference there. Anyway, now “once” always makes me think of that.
